A Postdoctoral Research Fellowship is immediately available in the laboratories of Dr. Mohammad F. Kiani (College of Engineering, Temple University) and Dr. Laurie E. Kilpatrick (Lewis Katz School of Medicine, Temple University). Funded by two major multi-year federal grants and in collaboration with several industrial partners, the Fellow will use state of the art in vivo models and novel microfluidic systems to study the impact of phenotypic differences on leukocyte-endothelial cell interactions and determine if the response of animal and organoid models of the inflammatory disease to emerging therapeutics are predictive of the clinical response to these drugs.
The candidate should have a strong background in human and animal cell culture techniques under various conditions, an understanding of the inflammatory response, significant experience with relevant research protocols and a record of peer-reviewed publications. Familiarity with animal models of inflammation will be helpful but not necessary. This is an excellent growth opportunity for a goal oriented recent Ph.D. graduate to use and develop cutting edge technologies in a highly interdisciplinary academic/industrial environment for treating sepsis. The Fellow must have excellent written and oral communication skills and be able to work independently. A completed Ph.D. in biomedical engineering or biomedical sciences is required. Applicant must be authorized to work legally in the United States.
Interested applicants should apply by email to Dr. Mohammad F. Kiani (email@example.com). Please attach in a single PDF file a cover letter, CV, summary of research experience, and complete contact information for three professional references. Review of applications begins immediately and will continue until the position is filled.
